Important Notes: (55)10 in Hex
The below are some of the important notes to be remembered while converting the (base-10) decimal number 55 into a (base-16) hexadecimal equivalent.
- The initial or first remainder while performing 55 MOD-16 operation is a Least Significant Bit (LSB).
- The last remainder while performing 55 MOD-16 operation is a Most Significant Bit (MSB).
- Find the equivalent hex number for each remainders of 55 MOD-16 operation before arranging the numbers from MSB to LSB to find the hex equivalent.
- The remainders of 55 MOD-16 operation in hex equivalents should be written from MSB to LSB to form the hex equivalent for the given decimal number (55)10.
How-to: What is (55)10 in hex?
The below step-by-step solution shows how to convert (55)10 to its equivalent hexadecimal number. Represent each remainders of 55 MOD-16 operation in hex equivalents and arranging them from MSB to LSB produces the hex equivalent of 55.
What is the hex equivalent of 55?
step 1 Observe the input parameters, values and what to be found:
Decimal Number = (55)10
What to be found:
What is the hexadecimal value of decimal number 55?
(55)10 = (?)16
step 2 Perform successive MOD-16 operation for decimal 55 until the quotient becomes 0, and mark the initial remainder as LSB and the final remainder as MSB as like the below:
Successive MOD-16 Operation for 55
|55 MOD-16||55 / 16 = 3||Remainder is 7 → LSB|
|3 MOD-16||3 / 16 = 0||Remainder is 3 → MSB|
step 3 Use the below table to find the equivalent hex representation for each remainders of successive 55 MOD-16 operation:
Decimal 7 in hex is 7 → LSB
Decimal 3 in hex is 3 → MSB
step 4 Write the remainders of 55 MOD-16 operation in hex equivalents from MSB to LSB produces the equivalent hex (base-16) number for decimal (base-10) 55:
(55)10 = (37)16
the hex equivalent of 55 is (37)16.
